Recently, there has been a new person trending on TikTok called The ‘Fish Girl’.

A video was uploaded by the YouTube channel ‘Cut’ about a year ago, showing kids trying to win $1000 by competing in games and tasks against one-other. This video included the ‘Fish Girl’ that everyone is now talking about on TikTok.

So, who is she?


Background of the ‘Fish Girl’ TikTok trend

Like many trends, the ‘Fish Girl’ is a later boomer. The ‘Fish Girl’ got her name from the video 7 High Schoolers Decide Who Wins $1000 uploaded in late 2019. Fans of the show appeared to like the ‘Fish Girl’ or, her real name, Jordyn.

In the video, Jordyn talks about how she wants to become a marine biologist as she loves the ocean and loves helping animals – thus why she coined the nickname by users ‘Fish Girl’.

People were drawn to Jordyn as she was funny, outspoken, and was quite different from the other cast as she is quite awkward in some moments. She sometimes clashes with them in the YouTube video causing controversy which fans also began to draw to.

A year later, the video has been picked up by TikTok – but only specifically for Jordyn, where fans are uploading clips of what she said in the YouTube video and showing their thoughts on it ranging from love to funny.
